Ferndale MI Chiropractor Lowers Back And Leg Pain
You can count on our chiropractors to focus our attention and energy relieving your low back pain. On occasion our chiropractic office will employ multiple forms of treatments which work together in relieving back pain. The best therapy to relieve back pain will often depend on the origin of the anatomy causing the pain. The origin of back pain is from disc injury, a spinal pinched nerve or spinal joint pressure.
Back pain can be attributed to several tissues however the pain itself is typically form direct nerve damage in the tissue or inflammation of the tissue. Our Ferndale MI chiropractors focus to relieve back pain depends on the origin of the pain. On many occasions we will employ two or more therapies to attack two different origins of back pain.
Muscle stimulation therapy is very beneficial for the relief of low back pain due to the multiple physiological effects. Muscle stimulation therapy can be used to relieve back pain in a variety of ways. The therapy is very effective when used as a nerve block or for the reduction of the pain signal. Electrical muscle stimulation therapy has the added benefit of acting like a mechanical pump thereby reducing the inflammation and pain stimulus. Inflammation cause pain by changing the acidity of the intracellular fluid which stimulates the pain receptors. Using the pulsed mode of delivery on the muscle stimulation therapy aids in reducing inflammation.
One of our secret weapons for the relief of back pain in our Ferndale Michigan chiropractic practice is a cryopack. The cold pack when used properly can be very effective in reducing the pain signal from back pain. A cold pack will have two physiological effects in reducing back pain. First is the reduction of the nerve conduction velocity and second cold packs decrease inflammation. By reducing the nerve conduction velocity it helps to reduce the pain signal. Reducing the inflammatory response will decrease the irritants which cause the pain signal.
Our chiropractors in Ferndale Michigan may want to apply a treatment called interferential current. Interferential current has been use for years on athletes for the reduction of nerve and muscle related pain. The mild form of current that is used with the interferential current is applied to the painful area in a square crossing pattern. To maximize the effectiveness of the therapy it is important to consider the relationship of pad placement along with which modified current to use to relieve back pain.
A very special form of therapy to relieve back aches by our Ferndale MI chiropractors is peripheral neurological facilitation. This type of therapy uses the nervous systems against itself for the reduction of back pain Peripheral neurological facilitation treatment uses the opposing nerves and the natural reflexes of the body to decrease muscle tension and reduce pain. The nerves of opposing muscle groups will naturally relax when the opposite muscle group is contracted which is a natural process we use to help relieve pain. Peripheral neurological facilitation is especially effective in reducing back pain when the pain is from a contracted or spastic muscle.
